This is a beautiful property. However, the home was not properly prepared for our stay. I contacted the hostess on June 1st, a month before I booked our visit for the 4th July weekend inquiring about there not being any patio furniture for our gathering. She told me that she was in the process of getting it. On the day of our arrival on July 3rd, I texted the hostess and inquired about the patio furniture again because it was not there. We had a family of 9 staying on the property and two more guests to come with the intention of dining on the patio at 4pm. The hostess informed me that the patio furniture would be delivered at 6 pm. No apology for this inconvenience and there were others. I had no idea that her process of providing patio furniture meant it would be done during our stay instead of before our arrival. I told the hostess that this wasn’t acceptable because I had spoken to her about this a month ago, and her answer to that was I could have the furniture delivered by 6pm or she would give me back my money and my family and I could leave now. Still no apology. All of our family weekend plans would be cancelled. I responded to the hostess that at the very least she should have apologized for any inconvenience instead of what she did offer. The furniture finally arrives and then the two people that delivered it proceed to put it together. Once that was finally finished and we thought we could dine, we realize that there were not enough utensils for us to use and the wine glasses the hostess said she would provide a month ago were not available either. We had a total of three spoons and six forks for a total of 11 people to dine. At this point, a family member took a trip to a Walmart to get what we needed. We later discovered that one of the bathroom toilets was not operable, we didn’t have enough linen to accommodate our party, and last, but not least, we found clothes in a drawer from a previous visitor which led me to question how well the property may have been cleaned before our visit. I did inform the owner of these things as well, and she finally did apologize for the inconveniences. She had someone come to the home to give us more linen and some wine glasses. We eventually had dinner by 8pm. I expected professionalism and a better amenable resolution than the option to cancel my event and receive my money back. I hope in time that the owner will become more considerate to her guests. We will not return.
